CHEM E-17 Principles of Organic Chemistry
This course is a one-semester introduction to organic chemistry, with an emphasis on structure and bonding, reaction mechanisms, stereochemistry, and chemical reactivity. Many of the major classes of organic compounds are covered, including alkenes, alkyl halides, alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, and carboxylic acid derivatives. Students who succeed in this course are well prepared for more advanced organic chemistry courses as well as the MCAT/DAT/GRE exams. This course does not include a lab; students who need an organic chemistry lab should enroll in CHEM E-17L.
